What To Expect

Morning Athens Sightseeing Tour: Begin your morning Athens sightseeing tour with a pickup from your Athens hotel, or alternatively, at a meeting point in central Athens.

Relax into your air-conditioned coach and drive to the Acropolis, the ancient citadel of Athens perched high above the city on a rocky outcrop. Head through the gates with your guide, and stroll around the top Acropolis attractions, including the Temple of Athena Nike, Propylea, Erechtheion, and the spectacular Parthenon.
Having explored these classical masterpieces, continue to the Panathenaic Stadium, the arena that hosted the first modern Olympic Games in 1896. Snap photos of the all-marble stadium and then drive to the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier at the Greek Parliament House in Syntagma Square.

Admire the handsome government buildings around the square, and then head along Panepistimiou Street, one of Athens’ main avenues. See St. Dionysius Cathedral with its arcaded portico, and pass the elegant buildings of the University of Athens, National Library, and Academy of Athens.

Lastly, pay a visit to the New Acropolis Museum, the ultra-modern museum that houses many of the classical statues, friezes, and artifacts recovered from the Acropolis. After viewing the highlights here, conclude your sightseeing tour, and enjoy free time to relax or have lunch (own expense) at a local taverna before your afternoon tour.

Afternoon Cape Sounion Trip: Reconvene with your coach and leave Athens behind as you journey south to Cape Sounion. As you travel, admire the beautiful beaches of the Saronic Gulf and hear tales of the Cape and its showpiece: the glimmering white Temple of Poseidon.

On arrival, leave your coach and walk up to the temple, built high on cliffs overlooking the Aegean Sea. Take in the awesome sea views and if it’s clear weather, gaze out over the island of Kea in the distance. Admire the Doric columns of the ancient temple and hear about the Greek myths that surround the building. Then, see the inscription made on one of the columns by the English poet Lord Byron in the early 1800s. Afterward, travel back to Athens where your tour ends at your hotel or the original start point.

Magnificent
Dianne_D, Oct 2023
Thoroughly enjoyed our city sightseeing tour with the Parthenon and the history of past events. Early arrival ensured pleasant atmosphere and walking trails and views of each ruins. Magnificent sites to the mere human eye
Excellent morning in Athens; skip the afternoon.
Jennifer_S, Oct 2023
We went on this tour October 18, 2023. We thoroughly enjoyed the morning component with your guide Vicki. The visit to the Acropolis and Acropolis museum were definitely the highlights. Vicki was lovely and an amazing wealth of information. We greatly appreciated the “whisper” technology that allowed us to hear her commentary clearly. If we had a do-over, we likely would have skipped the trip to Cape Sounion. It was a little underwhelming after our fabulous morning experience and our afternoon tour guide had little personality and seemed disinterested. On the bright side, the drive afforded us a look at the coast south of the city. Overall worth the cost and a great introduction to Athens.
Long day of doing both tours
Michele_B, Oct 2023
Did the double tour with city sightseeing and then Sounion. It was a long day and I’m not sure if I would recommend doing both. The city sightseeing was perfect but the trip out to Sounion is long and coming back we were dropped off at a hotel that wasn’t ours. We were so tired we got off anyway and walked back to our hotel.
Athens overview
Louise_D, Oct 2023
This tour was a good overview of Athens. We were only in the city for a day. We were able to see the highlights of the city.
It was great! People were...
Vanessa_V, Sep 2023
It was great! People were super nice and we had time to see everything we wanted to! We did the all day package that included Acropolis, the Museum and the Cape. Great way to have an amazing overview!
Joy (guide) and Dimitri...
Shawne_L, Aug 2023
Joy (guide) and Dimitri (driver) were amazing! Loved that the bus was air conditioned and the admission tickets were included. Highly recommend if you want to cover a lot of ground in one day. Tip: wear shoes with gripping soles. Marble is slippery.
Great foundation to start your visit
Chanera_R, Jul 2023
Other than miscommunication about transportation back, it was a very good tour. Lots of historical information.
Great Tour!
Whitney_H, Jul 2023
This was a great full-day tour! We covered a lot of ground throughout Athens! Our tour guide, Joy, was very friendly and knowledgeable. While we didn’t enjoy waiting in the long lines in the heat at the Acropolis, everything else was nice. If I had to do it again, I probably would skip the Cape Sounion portion of the tour. It was nice, but the 1.5 hour drive there and then 1.5 hour drive back didn’t make it worth it, in my opinion.
Great time
Joseph_E, Jul 2023
Acropolis was amazing and tour guide awesome. Poseidon Temple was good with an amazing view but the van was cramped and did not make for enjoyable ride. Need to do briefing to ensure passengers do not recline if using small van. Acropolis trip the bus was hot.
Waist of time and money
bashar_m, Jul 2023
What a waist of time and money, a lot of lecturing with almost nothing to see. The entry to the acropolis and the museum cost €25 only. The trip to cape sounion take 90 minutes each way to see a couple of columns at the top of a hill. Not recommend at all.
Saw a lot
Joel_S, Jul 2023
We had a good experience doing both tours but it did make for a very long day. The only negative I had was there was very little time for lunch by the time our Athens tour ended. The Poseidon’s Temple tour was a separate group from the Athens tour. We had less than 40 minutes to find a place to eat before we had to return for the next tour.
Wonderful multipart trip.
Jennifer_F, May 2023
This was a great trip. The morning excursion to the Acropolis was magical. Loved the Acropolis Museum. Cape Sounion and the Temple of Poseidon were unexpectedly moving.
Athens Tour

Our tour Director was absolutely wonderful! He knew all the history we wanted to know. He made the trip a memorable experience. and thanks again to all of you!
Half Day Athens and Cape Sounion
Lizbeth_R, Mar 2023
The Temple of Poseidon was amazing! Our tour guides were very informative and gave us plenty of time to walk around and view everything.
Disappointing
Lisa_S, Nov 2022
Our guide spoke too fast and in monotone, very boring. We left the tour and didn’t finish, we went off on our own. Waste of time and money!
Loved!
Marinelle_S, Sep 2022
This was a great tour!!! I learned so much about the ancient Greek culture and architecture. Getting on multiple busses in multiple locations was a bit confusing but we still enjoyed the AC bus with WiFi. We had lunch at the Plaka after the morning tour and then hopped on the bus to finish out the afternoon tour. Sounion was beautiful but a very long ride (over an hour 1 way) and the view was beautiful but it just made for a very long day. So if you do this tour, be sure you’ve had plenty of sleep because it’s a full day of fun. I loved the tour guides (Zeta and Dmitra, I think)- they were so smart, friendly, and beautiful. Be sure to wear sturdy shoes for the Acropolis-it’s very slick and I saw multiple people fall and slip on the marble.
5 stars
Sarah_J, Sep 2022
The experience was wonderful! Vicky (sightseeing and acropolis) and Mina (cape sounion trip) we’re both fantastic and knowledgable guides. I had a wonderful time and would recommend.
Wonderful, informative tour
Ruth_M, Aug 2022
We really enjoyed the trip to the Acropolis and Cape Sounion. Our tour guides did a wonderful job of keeping us on schedule and on task. I would highly recommend this tour. It was a great value for the limited time we had to spend in Athens.
Excellent tour! Terrible bus!
Charles_G, Aug 2022
The ancient ruins on the tour were quite captivating! However, the poorly working AC on the bus only exacerbated the heat index on the bus!
Excellent tour around Athens
TiffanyL_J, Aug 2022
Great history behind Athens and our tour guides explained it very well. What an amazing experience to see. You have to book this tour!
